Lady Killer book I am a fan of Ed McBain's 87th Precinct series and have been reading them chronologically.

These are great books if you are into 1950's detective fiction and need a quick, easy read between other major reads. I have another dozen or so on my Kindle and look forward to reading more of the 87th Precinct. I am a fan of Ed McBain's 87th Precinct series and have been reading them chronologically. This book was different than the previous novels because it focused on one case over the span of a single 12 hour day.

Lady Killer is a crime fiction about the law enforcement officers at the 87TH precinct in some fictitious city

Lady Killer is a crime fiction about the law enforcement officers at the 87TH precinct in some fictitious city. The books are all quick reads that serve as good filler material in between longer novels. All the books are good, nothing exceptional, but the reader develops a familiarity with the police personnel. Written at a time when crime novels were an attraction, as were westerns in their day. It is easy to picture the places and the people in the stories. I picked up several of the Ed McBain series because I like to read about familiar characters and series provide them as does this one. I thought it'd be fun to look back on the good old days of crime solving and this series does that too.

Written in 1957 as a paperback, the author was strictly limited to 180 pages, no more and no less per Mr. McBain so this is a quick read, but an entertaining one. A kid walks into the 87th Precinct station house with a note threatening a murder at 8pm that night and so begins the chase. Who is the intended victim? Who is the kid? And, of course, who is the Perp? All in the space of eight hours, or more to the point, 180 pages. No time for the usual McBain tangents, although he does manage to sneak a few short dalliances into the investigation. Not a clue as to the outcome until the very end.

If you like a shorter story for a long flight, this will suit you just fine or if you enjoy McBain you won't be disappointed.

First published in 1958, this is the eighth entry in Ed McBain's 87th Precinct series. By this point, the main characters were fairly well-established and needed no introduction, but the book itself is something of an oddity in the series in that most of the books have the detectives of the 87th working at least a couple of cases. This book focuses on a single case, worked by all of the detectives over a the course of a long and frustrating twelve-hour day.

As the team assembles in the morning, a young boy delivers a printed message to the desk sergeant. The man who wrote the message announces that he is going to kill "the Lady" at 8:00 that evening. The detectives have no idea if this is a practical joke or not, but naturally, they have to take the threat seriously.

In a desperate race against time the detectives work along parallel tracks, trying to determine the identity of the victim and that of the man who intends to kill her. As always, McBain provides an interesting and entertaining ride, although this would not rank among the better books in the series.

In a new introduction, McBain explains that he wrote the book under a deadline, in just nine days. His contract provided that he had to produce a manuscript of 180 pages--no more, no less--and that is exactly what he did. In order to do so, though, he added a lot of filler to what otherwise could have been a fairly short novella. There are a lot of extended descriptions of the weather and of various characters where McBain is obviously just attempting to fill space in an effort to hit his 180-page target and to get the book done as quickly as possible.

In less capable hands, this schedule would have almost certainly produced a book that would hardly be worth reading. But McBain is so good that even a book written under this kind of pressure turns out to be very entertaining and demonstrates what a talented and prolific writer could do "back in the day" when pulp novelists regularly produced several books a year. I wouldn't recommend that someone new to the series start with this book, but fans of the series will want to seek it out.

I have downloaded 37 books by Ed McBain and have read 34 of them. Lady Killer is a crime fiction about the law enforcement officers at the 87TH precinct in some fictitious city. The books are all quick reads that serve as good filler material in between longer novels. All the books are good, nothing exceptional, but the reader develops a familiarity with the police personnel. Written at a time when crime novels were an attraction, as were westerns in their day. It is easy to picture the places and the people in the stories. The writing is clean and quickly draws the reader into the observer mode.

I could call this McBain's Folly or how about an introduction to the 87TH Precinct. McBain wrote this book in 1957, it took him 9 days and it shows. One of the early 87's, the characters are less defined as in later books along with his writing. He tends to pontificate a little more in the early books and use the so called hip language of the time which seems a little dated now. The story itself is not bad but after reading his later books where everything came together it was hard to get through this one. In this book It's almost as if he had a clump of clay and had just begun to mold his characters. He along with his characters have made the journey together.

if you enjoy the earlier books in the series or want to see how some of the characters developed, this is highly recommended. the 6th or 7th book of the series, I think, Fast paced, and once you start you will see why. Cotton Hawes is featured more than in some other books and you get to see some of his earlier work in the precinct. McBain in his earlier work in the precinct but as good as always and a preview of the city in its earlier stages. Cant go wrong, not a long book but most of the early ones aren't but worth a trip to the ciy

Easy, fast paced read with lots of dialog. Detectives looking to solve a crime in a limited amount of time

The author said he wrote this in nine days and to me it shows. It just didn't have the same drama and mystery that others in this series has. I had a hard time staying interested.
I picked up several of the Ed McBain series because I like to read about familiar characters and series provide them as does this one. I thought it'd be fun to look back on the good old days of crime solving and this series does that too. If anyone wants complete enjoyment of this series, however, I think they must forget all the advanced tools available to investigators on TV and in the movies and concentrate on the stories, not the techniques. It is the only way to fully appreciate McBain's 87th precinct.
